Both should be fixed now, thanks.

Yup it's different in which way the caching works... and yeah folks will
pay for this because it's an excellent method for building a site that
needs a lot of computation power.  You just fan out the computation behind
reverse proxies, and let the proxies cache the static content leaving more
cpu on the computation boxes.  Also useful when, for example, your
database doesn't run on, say, Linux or FreeBSD... it's so cheap to build
256Mb linux/freebsd reverse proxies to handle static gif loads, and fan
out to a few ultrasparcs doing just database/compute work.
